Just Getting Started
The day comes when your kids are grown and you find yourself sitting in the middle of the tidy nest you have spent years feathering. You have encouraged your children that “you can do anything, be anything, and go anywhere,” but now you cannot help but ask, “Does God have something more for me?
“Writing for those who have a dream but feel too old, too invisible, too unqualified, or as if they missed their opportunity somewhere along the way, Wendy Peter provides both the inspiration and the blueprint to:
– move past your false finish line and reimagine the next season of your life
– identify and awaken your true purpose and step with courage into your calling
– create a road map to get your dreams off the ground and running
The culmination of your life experiences–the reason you are uniquely you–is exactly what God will use for such a time as this. Don’t believe the lie that you need to be young to launch your dreams. No matter your age or circumstances, you can reimagine your future, activate dormant dreams, and glorify God by getting clear about what he’s calling you to right now!

God For The Rest Of Us Pastors DVD Kit$19.99Add to cart
The Pharisees called Jesus “a friend of sinners.” He took it as a compliment. Would you? In these resources, Pastor Vince Antonucci and his unusual church that reaches out to people on the Las Vegas Strip explore a powerful question: what if God is not just for the faithful, church-going, or holier-than-thou types – what if God is for the rest of us? This small group study expands viewpoints, overcomes stereotypes, and models how to really love people like Jesus does. The Pastor’s Kit includes everything needed to plan a six-week teaching series around the concepts presented in the Small Group Study. It includes:
Special video message for pastors
Video guide for implementing a church-wide program
Six sermon outlines
Six short video clips to accompany each week’s sermon
Six sermon bumpers (short video clips to introduce each week’s sermon)
Digital art files to use in creation of bulletins and other promo materials
Authentic Faith : What If Life Isnt Meant To Be Perfect But We Are Meant To$16.99Add to cart
“This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.”–John the Apostle Isn’t it startling how God reveals himself most profoundly in places we least expect to encounter him? He is intent on showing himself Lord in all our circumstances–in the highs and the lows alike. The faith he calls us to is far more than a glowing positivism that shields us from life’s struggles. It is one that guides us into a deepening intimacy with the God who sustains us in the broad sweep of life. Best-selling author Gary Thomas helps us sharpen our spiritual vision and fortify our commitment by examining ten disciplines God uses to forge a fire-tested faith. A biblical view of these disciplines can safeguard us from disillusionment when-not if-difficulties surface in our lives. How we respond will determine the depth and vitality of our walk with God. Sharing scriptural insights, the wisdom of Christians through the centuries, and cogent personal observations, Thomas explores the disciplines of: * Selflessness * Waiting * Suffering * Persecution * Social Mercy * Forgiveness * Mourning * Contentment * Sacrifice * Hope and Fear Drawing liberally from his storehouse of colorful and engaging stories, Thomas brings his topics to life. Find out how a message scrawled on a baseball made a big-league difference to a discouraged young pitcher. Learn how a nineteen-year-old Catholic acolyte, marked by the tragedies of war, grew up to usher in the collapse of Communism in Poland. Read the touching account of feud, reconciliation, and friendship between two of America’s founding fathers. As Gary Thomas reminds us, Jesus said that in this world we will have trouble. Paul exhorted believers to mourn with those who mourn. James wrote that God chooses the poor of this world to be rich in faith. Clearly, faith is about something other than a smooth ride through this fallen world. Rather, authentic faith is shaped, tempered, and purified in the flames of struggle. In a culture sated with blessings and comfort, Authentic Faith reveals the rich benefits that derive from embracing the harder truths of Scripture. This eye-opening look at what it means to be a true disciple of Jesus will encourage you, bolster your faith, and help you rise above shallow attachments to fix your heart on things of eternal worth.
Dont Give The Enemy A Seat At Your Table Study Guide (Student/Study Guide)$13.99Add to cart
In this study, bestselling author and pastor Louie Giglio relates how several years ago he experiencing one of his toughest seasons as a leader. He was feeling attacked, and in a moment of weakness, he fired off an angry text to a friend. It took him five minutes to compose the message-paragraphs of woe about the one causing harm. The nine-word text back from his friend simply said, “Don’t give the enemy a seat at your table.”
Louie relates how this simple text led him to realize that he had been allowing his adversary-the devil-into the conversation going on in his mind. He had, in fact, been giving his enemy a seat at his table. In turn, this led Louie to Psalm 23, one of the most loved texts in all of Scripture that has comforted God’s people throughout the ages.
As group members go through this study, they will see they have the power, through Christ, to take back control of their thoughts and emotions. As they uncover the meaning behind the words of Psalm 23, they will discover that God is saying they do not have to give a place to fear, envy, or despair in their lives. Ultimately, they will walk away with practical ways to defeat the enemy’s lies and know how to experience peace and security in the midst of any situation as they learn to listen to voice of their Shepherd.
